Playback Information
Navigation features for this DVD will vary depending on the features of the remote control you use.

Some remote controls mark the video clip when you hit STOP. When the disk starts up again, it plays from the point you marked (that is, from the point where the disk stopped). To clear the marks, hit STOP twice (as if you were double-clicking a mouse).

To stop viewing a video clip before the end of the clip, holding down the FF / REW buttons will call up the Clip Menu. The DISK MENU or TITLE MENU buttons will call up the Main Menu.

While screening a conference video clip, you can move to the beginning of the next or previous clip by hitting the FF or REW button on your remote. This advanced search feature allows you to quickly move between conferences without moving back through the menus for the clips.

Playing the DVD on your PC
To view a DVD–Rom’s video or text content, your PC must have a DVD drive. (Please note: computers with a CD drive will not recognize or read a DVD–Rom). Most users with computers that have DVD drives have DVD decoders preinstalled by their hardware manufacturers. You can easily find out if you have one the first time you attempt to play a DVD movie. When you insert a DVD movie into your DVD drive for the first time, you'll be prompted to play the DVD movie, or a default player will automatically launch.

Follow the dialog box (if any) to launch the DVD movie player then play the movie. At this point, one of two things will happen. Either your movie will begin to play right away, or you will get an error message, saying that a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer, so the DVD will not be played.

If you get this message, you need a DVD decoder. If you bought a PC equipped with a DVD drive, check with the computer manufacturer. They may have updated DVD decoder drivers available, often for free. If you upgraded your PC and installed a DVD drive, it may or may not have come with a DVD decoder. Check the manufacturer's Web site for a decoder.

If you are unable to find an installed DVD decoder, you can purchase one from the same vendors from which PC manufacturers license theirs. Sonic, InterVideo, and CyberLink all have DVD Decoder Packs available for purchase and download over the Internet. The cost from each vendor runs about $14.95. Their decoder packs install quickly and easily, and as soon as installation was complete your PC should immediately started to play the movie after inserting a DVD.

Accessing non-video files on your DVD
Certain Heinemann DVD-Roms include non-video files that you can access from your computer with a DVD drive. (Please note: computers with a CD drive will not recognize or read a DVD–Rom). You may access these files by locating the files on the DVD, or by using DVD@CCESS™, which allows any Macintosh or Windows DVD player application to respond to the file links included on the DVD.

The software can be installed from the DVD. If you are unable to install DVD@CCESS™, contact your systems administrator.

Please note that to access the files your computer must have a program to view or open the files. For instance, to access a .pdf, your computer must have a PDF viewer/reader such as Adobe Acrobat installed; .doc files require a word processing program.

Finding the PDF files on the DVD
(located in the PDFs folder on the DVD):

    Macintosh Users
    Double Click the DVD Drive icon on your Desktop.
    Double Click on the PDFs folder.

    Windows users
    Double Click the My Computer icon.
    Right Click the DVD Drive icon.
    Choose Explore from the drop down menu.
    Double Click on the PDFs folder.

Installing and using DVD@CCESS™
(included with recent versions of the Apple DVD Player application and also located on the DVD):

    Macintosh Computers
    With Macintosh computers, DVD@CCESS™ functionality is built in to recent versions of the Apple DVD Player application. It is not necessary to install any software if your computer includes version 2.4 or later of the Apple DVD Player.

    You may need to configure DVD Player to process the DVD@CCESS™ links. Select Enable DVD@CCESS™ Web Links in the Disc tab in DVD Player Preferences.

    Windows Computers
    With Windows computers, you need to install a small application that will process the DVD@CCESS™ links.

    To install the DVD@CCESS™ software on a Windows system:

    1. Insert the DVD into the computer.
    2. Open the DVD so you can view its contents.
    3. Open the DVD@ccess folder.
    4. Run the Installer application (DVD@ccess.exe) and follow the onscreen instructions.
    5. Restart your computer to activate the DVD@CCESS™ functionality.

    Notes for Using DVD@CCESS™ on Windows Computers

    • After installation, you can play your DVDs using any DVD playback application. When a web link is encountered during playback, the DVD@CCESS™ software will automatically launch your browser and jump to the specified file.
    • The software only needs to be installed once on a given computer; it is not tied to a specific DVD title.
    • You can disable the DVD@CCESS™ functionality at any time by opening the DVD@CCESS™ system tray applet and deselecting the DVD@ccess Active checkbox.
    • DVD@CCESS™ web links will only work properly if the playback computer has an Internet connection. If a link does not work as expected, verify that you actually have a connection. (This does not apply to web links which reference local URLs, such as a file on the DVD or hard disk.)
